“It's Grim Up North.”
Reviewed 19 February 2007

The room was tiny. Really small for the price. They hadn't cleaned the room when I arrived so I had to wait in the bar area, then when they let me check in they hadn't actually cleaned the room properly.

Don't pay attention to the "please wait to be seated" sign in the food area, you'll be there for ages. You'll get barked at for siting down but at least you'll get some food.

I've stayed in a lot of holiday inns all over the place and this has been by far the worst value for money.

  • Liked — The front desk staff were nice.
  • Disliked — Dirty and tiny with a terrible view of the car park.

A pleasent welcome from the front desk and a good breakfast served by polite and helpful staff saved the day for this incredibly run down hotel.
If all the other hotels around had not been fully booked there is no way we would have stayed at this hotel.
The common areas were so dated and dirty, the room itself was not much better. This hotel is crying out for a re-furb, please give it an overhaul before the good staff all leave.

Reviewed 14 August 2006

I booked this hotel for an overnight stop whilst visiting the British Open Ladies Golf, at nearby Lytham St. Annes. The location was perfect, situated just off the motorway exit and only a fifteen minute drive from the golf. Having used Novotels previously I was aware that the brand catered well for families in the sense that all of the hotels have spacious family rooms.

Upon arrival my room was as booked with a bed made up for my daughter. The room was clean and tidy although the white melamine furniture synonymous with this hotel chain did look a little cheap. Additional pillows were delivered to the room within five minutes of my request to reception. Staff were courteous at all times.

The bar and restaurant area was pleasanty furnished with reasonably priced drinks. I did not use the restaurant so cannot comment on the quality of that or otherwise. There was an outdoor pool although I would have to question the benefit of that taking into account the climate in the North West of England most of the time. In my experience this is a good choice for business or leisure travellers requiring a short stop over, particularly if using the motorway network. It is also conveniently close to the coastal resorts in the Blackpool area. At the weekend room rate I paid of £40.00, very good value too.

  • Liked — Value for Money
  • Disliked — Bland room furniture
  • Tips/Secrets — This is out of town so you will need a car to get about.
